The definition of perfect barbecue depends on who you are and where you’re from. Opinions are strong, and discussions about one cooking method over another and sauce vs. no sauce, whether it’s barbecue, BBQ, or Bar-B-Que — not to mention the whole Brunswick stew debate -- can get ugly.
One thing is for sure, the Stewart family has a long and successful history in creating some of the best BBQ I’ve tasted. Bradley Stewart the proprietor of “Bradley’s Bar-B-Que” on Church St. in Covington says his family has been cooking up bar-b-que for more than 60 years.
“My Dad started this tradition with me and my family long before I opened my first restaurant.” Bradley told me.
Standing outside talking with folks as they headed inside for lunch you can clearly see he has the right recipe.
Warren Gallop says: he stops by for his lunch often and that Bradley’s is one of his favorite restaurants in town.
“There is no other bar-b-que! Are you kidding me?” Gerald Rankissoon of Covington remarked.
My own feelings regarding barbecue can be summed up in three simple words: Bring it on! So forget the sack lunch today and head on over to Bradley’s for some real good Bar-B-Que.
